University Properties in North
Part of State to be Planted
With Various Species.
TO DIRECT MANAGEMENT
A considerable part of the last
summer was spent successfully in
studying conditions on the grounds
of the University properties at
Douglas lake and Sugar island, ac-
cording to Prof. W. F. Ramsdell,
newly appointed under the George
Willis Pack foundation.
The detailed data secured byl
Prof. L. J. Young will be utilized by
Professor Ramsdell in preparation
for plans of management for the
University's forest property. These
plans will include such steps as
planting the open areas with repre-
sentative species of Michigan's bet-
ter timber trees; thinning in dense
stands of second growth hard-
woods, and improvement cuttings in
the older stands by removing defec-
tive trees to exhilirate growth in
the remaining stand of thrifty tim-
ber.

Increase in water rates is the on-
ly feasible plan by which necessary
funds can be raised to -meet the
cost of improvements in the water
department, Prof. William C. Hoad,
chairman of the rate commission,
said yesterday.
A bond issue providing for the
cost of improvements, twice defeat-
I ed by voters, has left the increase
in rates as the only alternative, Pro-
fessor Hoad stated.
Decision on this issue will proba-
bly be made at a meeting of the
board of water commissioners and
the rate commission to be held Oc-
tober 21.
The bond issue, as outlined by the
commission, would provide for the
construction of a new reservoir at
an estimated cost of $110,000, the
construction of new mains and the
connecting of dead-end mains,
making the total amount to be

Alumni
Notes s

Arc Michigan men becoming
mrore effiminate?
Apparently they are from the re-
ports several beauty shops and
drug stores are giving out lately.
These reports deal with the in-
crease in business from men, young
ones, in the cosmetic, facial, and
hair treatment line.
According to the reports from the
beauty shops, men are becoming
quite a bit more fastidious and
self-conscious about their complex-
ion and hair. Treatments are giv-
en to them in the form of facials,
mud packs, hair treatments, and
even waving of the latter.
The drug stores report an in-
crease in sales to college men ef
cosmetics, mainly, cold creams,
cleansing creams, and vanishing
creams, as well as after-shaving lo-
tions and perfumes.
Such a state of affairs seems to
disprove the statement that flam-
ing youth is going to the dogs-it's
going to the beauty parlors.
Law Seniors to Begin
Practice Court Work
Seniors in the Law school will
have their first practical experience
in court procedure when practice
court sessions begin next week.
The third year students are now
selecting their partners and will
be handed the facts in their cases
soon.
Procedure in the practice court
ollows that used by the courts in
a majority of the states, and of-
fers the students opportunity to
apply their legal training in find-
ng principles of law and prepar-
ng them for exposition before a
court.
Michigan established this system
about forty years ago, and was the
irst institution to use it. Since
hen it has been adopted by al-
most all the leading law schools in
his country.
DePauw University discovered,
upon taking inventory, that com-
paratively few letters of the Greek

ating second in favor.

BAXTER TO WRITE
RESEARCHREPORT
Prof. Dow V. Baxter, of the
school of forestry, who has recent-
ly returned from Europe, is pre-
paring to publish the results of1
his study of the Dutch elm treeI
disease.
While in Europe this past sum-
mer, Professor Baxter investigatedI
the methods being used by other
governments to combat this dis-
ease which already has destroyed
many of the world renowned trees
of the Versailles and which is be-
coming quite a menace to the elm
trees in our country, especially in
the central west. Tests at the My-
cological laboratory in Berlin-Dah-
lem, Germany have shown that the
American elm is one of the most
susceptible of all elms to the dis-
ease, Professor Baxter reported.
In addition to his pathological
studies in France, Germany, Nor-
way and Scotland, he was also a
delegate at the Third Nordiske
Skogkongress in Norway and the
International Botanical congress at
Cambridge, England.

E. J. Ottaway, publisher of the
Port Huron Times-Herald, past
president of the Alumni association,
and Dean G. Carl Huber, of the
graduate school, met last night at
the Union to discuss the ten-year
program which is being sponsored
by the various alumni groups
throughout the country.
J. W. Switzer, general passenger
agent of the Michigan Central rail-
road, is in Ann Arbor today making
arrangements with T. Hawley Tap-
ping, general secretary of the Alum-
ni association, for special trains
which will run from Ann Arbor
and Detroit to Boston for the Mich-
igan-Harvard football game.
University of Michigan clubs of
Pasadena and Los Angeles have
made arrangements to hold their
luncheons on Saturday in order
that they may hear the radio ac-
counts of the Michigan football
games in a body. The change in
time makes it possible for them to
enjoy the game while having lun-
cheon.
Women of the University of Colo-
rado lately launched a membership
drive for their University Women's
club. The purpose of this organ-
ization is twofold, first, to provide
a social center for Independent
women and second, to promote
inter-sorority feeling. The dues
include tickets to the club dances.
The club house on the campus is
open to members at all times.
Women's league recently issued a
book of college and fraternity songs,
with a special section devoted to
the big ten schools.

SLOSSON FINISHES
BOOK ON AMERICA
World War, Period Folowing, Is
Subject of Volume.
"The Great Crusade and After"
is the name of the book that was
written recently by Prof. Preston
W. Slosson, of the department of
history.
This book records the social and
economicmhistory of the United
States from 1914 to 1928. It is the
latest volume of "The History of
American Life," a series of books
dealing with this phase of history,
that are being published.
The series numbers in all 14
books, and includes a volume of
the Spanish and Dutch colonies.
and several volumes on the Eng-
lish colonies. The remaining books
deal with the United States after
it became a republic.
"Not all of the books of the ser-
ies have been published as yet,"
Professor Slosson said. "However
there have been three books re-
leased that deal with the colonies,
one with the period including 1830
and 1840, and one with the period
of reconstruction directly follow-
ing the Civil war.
The "History of American Life"
series covers every phase of Amer-
ican history except the political
side, Professor Slosson said. The
subjects most emphasized however
are the social and economic life of
the American people.

Chemist Scores Use of Hydrogen
in Dirigibles, Cause of
Recent Catastrophe.
EXPLAINS R-101 DISASTER
"Helium is a practical necessity
in dirigible transportation," stated
Dr. H. H. Willard of the chemistry
department in an interview yester-
day.
"It is just as safe to build a house
of wood as to use hydrogen for
dirigible inflation. Hydrogen is per-
fetly safe until ignited. And any-
thing of an inflammable nature
will ignite hydrogen. However there
must be an actual leakage of the
gas before combustion can take
place. This is what happened
when the R-101 crashed," Dr. Wil-
lard pointed out.
"Helium is found in natural gas
in varying quantities," he said.
"The reason that United States
has a virtual monopoly is that de-
posits of natural gas in this coun-
try are unusually rich in helium."
"In fact a deposit of gas has re-
cently been found in Colorado in
which seven per cent of helium has
been reported. As the normal per
centage is about two it is easy to
see that this is an important dis-
covery. If true it will supply suffi-
cient helium for years to come."
"Helium was first noticed during
an eclipse of the sun in 1868. Dur-
ing the eclipse, the sun for the first
time was viewed thru a spectro-
scope, on instrument by means of
which it is possible to detect the-
presence of various elements from
the light they give out when heat-
cd. Later helium was found to es-
cape from certain radioactive m-
erals," Dr. Willard added.
"As helium is the most difficult
gas known to freeze it is recovered
from natural gas by a purely phys-
ical process. The gas is frozen un-
til only helium remains in a gaseus
state," Dr. Willard said.
